Hey Fitz!

No, I didn't know that. It looks like the video hit a few news sites as well.

Cool.

JIm,
Please don't try this with Russian Thunder. Here is one of your full scale buddies that had to land his full scale aerobatic plane with only one wing.

I thought it was just another model until I saw the pilot open the canopy.

Don't know about you... But I'm pretty sure that was fake
The landing was like impossible, no matter what, it was like the weirdest touchdown EVER!
I just don't believe that video.

Pretty sure that was fake? Maybe you need to go see an optrometrist? If that wasn't fake then I don't know what is.

Cheers,

Rjowsey?

Let me guess, you didn't bother to check the above link? That's the exact same *fake* footage you've just posted. Hence my previous post applies here too.

Cheers,

Sander.

This was amazing however I have a question for you Jim, with real flight can you simulate loosing a wing or other faults like perhaps an aileron failing?

it's good to hear the positive feedback on Kick It. It'll be my first year working with this event, so I'm anxious for June to arrive!

I've seen the RC video of the knife edge landing many times in the past but I had no idea it was you Jim, who was working the sticks until just now! Great job

I am sure jim already knows this, but I just saw this video on tv along with a recreation of it on the show Is It True? on the Discovery Channel. That was the part of the show that I enjoyed the most, as I thought some of the people who were on it were not very smart when it came to flying, planes, or r/c planes....
